Adam Weishaupt (アダム・ヴァイスハウプト Adamu Vaisuhauputo?) is the main antagonist of Senki Zesshō Symphogear AXZ.

He is an alchemist who is the founder of the Bavarian Illuminati whose lineage is shrouded in mystery.


He is based off of the real-life German founder of the Illuminati, Adam Weishaupt.


The director and foremost authority of the Bavarian Illuminati. Within the organization, there are some who say he is "all looks and no brains." They believe he has no sense for alchemy and see him as no more than simply ordinary. Furthermore, he is seen as surprisingly incompetent as the organization's leader. Despite all that, the reality is that he is an individual whose magical potential far surpasses any ordinary man. He controls numerous alchemists by force as a master of the craft who has no equal. Details about him are shrouded in mystery, he has been the organization's director since its creation but his actual age is unclear.[1]


Symphogear AXZ

In the last episode, when Adam is weakened, Hibiki used all of her power to hit him. However, Adam's new arm was regenerated, and with that, he showed his true form: A giant puppet monster. Adam easily overpowers the girls, and when he makes his finishing blow, the girls were forced to sing the Superb Song, with the help of Elfnein who used a bypass to divert some of the strain to the Dáinsleif in order for them to not explode. After that, the girls transformed their Symphogears into their Last Ignition mode.[2]

When Hibiki saw his photo on screen, she had flashback of him saying that "Hope was destroyed today. Despair of tomorrow, of the future![3]

Attacks & Abilities

As an alchemist who has lived for many years, Adam is a strong individual.


  • Gentle Slasher (ジェントルスラッシャー Jentoru Surasshā?)[4] - Adam merely throws his hat renforced by alchemy, igniting the edge, towards Saint-Germain.
  • Golden Transmutation (黄金錬成 Ōgon Rensei?) - Using his alchemy, Adam can create a nuclear transmutation to create gold. The destructive power is estimated by ten megatons, the same as the Tunguska event.


  • In AXZ Episode 5, he is seen reading a book titled "Voice Prints of the God" by an author whose last name is Ketch. This book appears to be a Symphogear creation.
  • He often lounges around in the nude, and has no problem going nude in battle or in public. He shares this trait with Finé to an extent.
  • He is the first villain to be killed by Hibiki.
